Trails Skied: #1, #30, #24 [9.8km], Glide Wax: Vauhti Blue, Grip Wax:
The thing I liked the most about today was everything. 5 star snow conditions on a sunny -5 day. Skated from P7, took #30, #1, Ridge, #24 and back. My wife was classic much of the same route. We both found the grooming and snow to be excellent. I might be biased because a second grooming pass was done on #1 around lunch-time and I was the second skater on the new soft corduroy. A sweet day, I have to think this evening and tomorrow will be the same.

Gatineau Park is ski paradise! The network of ski trails offer machine groomed skate skiing and classic skiing as well as little groomed backcountry trails. Multiple access points allow skiers to access a variety of terrain and scenery. The NCC offers season or daily pay rates.

For suggestions on where to ski, excellent trail descriptions, photos and maps checkout Michael McGoldrick`s website about recreational xc-skiing in Canada`s National Capital Region (with an emphasis on the Gatineau Park).

The NCC also maintains a grooming report on-line. If you encounter people walking on groomed trails, you are best advised to contact the NCC. They are responsible for the enforcement on this so report those trail wreckers whenever you see them by calling 819-827-2020 (Visitor Centre), or email
